Commentary on 18-wheeler Accident on I-285 in DeKalb County
It's not unusual for there to be few details publicly available about a complex commercial truck wreck. The challenge, however, is finding out if any details are available. Quite frankly, I've looked into hundreds of commercial vehicle wrecks, and the authorities don't always have the experience or tools to find out what happened. For victims and families in need of help, this can clearly cause problems. That's one of the reasons I've always relied on independent accident reconstructionists who can help to ensure nothing important slips through the cracks. Perhaps taking those steps here will prove necessary.
